The Fort Wayne Flash was a full-contact women's outdoor football team of the Women's Football Alliance based in Fort Wayne, Indiana.[2] The team started its exhibition season in 2006 and officially became part of the National Women's Football Association and began playing league games in 2007.[3][4] Home games for the 2008 season were played at Bishop John M. D’Arcy Stadium on the University of Saint Francis campus,[5] however, starting in 2009, the team played on the campus of Woodlan Senior/Junior High School in nearby Woodburn.[6]

In 2008, the Flash clinched their first ever playoff berth and won the Midwest Division title. However, their playoff run was one-and-done, as they lost to the Columbus Comets 14-7.

Beginning in 2009, the Flash played in the Women's Football Alliance.

For 2010, the Flash were taking the season off to reorganize and cope with the death of player Karen O'Boyle and since then have never been heard of again.
